My Favorite Store In Alabama
Shopping Local Is Caring.
I'm not a huge clothing guy at all, you can find me wearing a black tee shirt with black jeans any day of the week. But once I'm passionate about a product or business - I spread the word like a wild fire. That's why I'm here to tell you about YellowHammer Creative in Birmingham.
I first was introduced to the product by yours truly Meg Summers (the twisted mind behind ALT 1017). She and a friend took me to Pizitz Food Hall which is a super cool mall-like structure that has all different types of foods from all over the world. But they have a few shops within Pizitz like a glasses shop and weird knickknacks you can get. But the store that takes the cake for me is YellowHammer Creative. Yellowhammer Creative offers quality products that are designed and printed in Birmingham, Alabama. Started in 2009 by designers Brett Forsyth and Brandon Watkins as a means to make concert posters, it has grown to be a multifaceted design and print studio. With having super cool retro posters and other cool Alabama related things, they make really sick shirts that are inspired by local business here in the state. The layouts and coloring of each product is unique to each business or styling. Places like this make Alabama weird and deserve so much respect for the outpouring local support they provide.
